Good morning, fellow meditators,
I had a really calm and peaceful meditation session this morning, maybe because I'd seen the sun come up and listened to the birds, first thing. It's to be expected that one day will be better than another, so never judge yourself as being 'good', or 'bad'. Remind yourself that it's all meditation practice.
This might be the day that your determination wavers, so I just want to encourage you all to stick with what you've been doing. No matter how much you really feel you can't be bothered, or you'd rather do something more fun, you'll get results from regular practice.
One of my favoured meditation teachers is Jack Kornfield and the title of one of his books is, 'After the Ecstasy, the Laundry'. It's really about how you cope with the joy of eventually finding that inner peace but then have to live with it out in the everyday world on a regular basis.
But for me I always think of it as a reminder that, after the excitement of your deciding you are going to become a meditator, you have to actually knuckle down and do it, and there's nothing exciting within it, to draw you in eagerly. But the reward comes much later if you stick with it. So.... please, just stick with it!
Hang in there everybody and do feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
